Award-winning comedian, Trevor Noah, is the most successful comedian in Africa. You may recognize him as the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. Recently, Trevor announced the Loud and Clear Tour, which will visit Bass Concert Hall on Friday, November 1st!
In Loud and Clear, Noah’s jokes are the jokes of a pseudo-researcher presenting his earnest observations of Americans. He conducts his comedy with an air of mock outrage and wide-eyed bewilderment like his exasperation toward California drivers. In one of his most entertaining bits, Noah—who speaks an impressive six languages— tells an anecdote about his experience visiting a German sandwich shop, laying out the story with a delightful array of different voices and accents.
No matter what, the audience is always laughing at someone — it can be at the ridiculousness of another culture, of millennials, or of baby boomers. Conversely, Noah often positions the audience, and himself, as the butt of the joke. We are all ridiculous, and so many of our actions make no sense. We are laughing at ourselves, and at the same time, we are learning about ourselves as well.
The connecting tissue of most of Noah’s comedy involves his own discoveries about other people’s lives. He is a person who delights in learning new things about the world, and we as the audience get to watch him relay his discoveries. In that reasoning, it makes perfect sense why an audience at a Trevor Noah comedy show would be of so many varied ages and races. There is no age limit on wanting to learn more about the world.
